Mileage out of 7.3L

What kind of mileage are yall getting out of your 7.3l on the economy tune? And who makes the best chip for that? My banks 6 gun only has Stock, 20%, 40%, 60%, 80%, and 100% over stock. If it has a economy tune i ain't aware of it. It was on the truck when i got it and I have no paper work with it.

This ain't exactly answering your question, but it may give you a baseline... My 2002 F350, Crewcab, 4x4, dually, six speed, 4:10 gears, 33K, original and stock, gets 20 MPG highway at 70 MPH, 15 MPG at 70 MPH highway pulling a 6K trailer. The six speeds get a little bit better then the automatics, and it depends on how you drive it. The same truck, pushed to 80 MPH gets 14MPG empty, and 10MPG with the trailer. The RPM in overdrive at 70 MPH is about 2350, which is kind of fast, but on the other hand it is not lugging, which kills a diesel.
